How to Make Elixir without Putting Crystals in Water?
Now that we know the crystals that shouldn’t be put in water, what do you do if you want to make crystal elixir out of them? It’s easy and keeps you safe. In fact, we suggest you repeat it with crystals that can be put in water too. All you have to do is, follow the steps below.
